So first things first: I'm no dev but still I want some advice!

I had beta1-2-3 on my 4S but removed it soon after beta3. Now beta7 is only hours away and i want to ask what to do to make my experience as smooth as possible?

Basically i need a step for step guide.....please :)

EDIT
Well i know what to do. But i need some basic tips.
Like is it worth installing every beta as new? If yes, is there another option besides the OTA update?

If you need a step by step guide, you shouldn't be installing the beta. There is more than enough information on these forums alone to figure it out.

I have done fresh install on every other release. If beta 7 does release today I will probably do OTA and wait for the official release to go fresh.

Why would you deal with the first 3 betas and then stop just as the OS was getting some polish? Betas 4-6 haven't had any big issues for me past application issues (most were resolved in beta 5).

I had beta 1 as it was released, but installed it on my iOS6 full used phone and then i got beta2 and 3 OTA which pretty much ****ed my iPhone up....

What's the other way to update besides OTA?
